All 32 real American football teams with their real players and current rosters.

That can't be cheap.

Yeah. EA holds the NFL license so these guys must obviously be somehow connected to that rotten apple which does not bode well for the whole bunch...

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Mantle Update Released

To the people who say NVidia can safely ignore Mantle, I think you're missing out on two important factors:

1. AMD chips are in both the XBone and PS4, so both of these will inherently support Mantle. As such it makes sense for devs to support it. If you were a AAA publisher and could get any advantage on both consoles and AMD pc users, why wouldn't you? That's got to be well over 75% of your market share right there.

2. DICE have implemented Mantle in Frostbite and EA have already mandated that all their studios are to use Frostbite.

Given those two together, it means that one of the largest publishers in the business is backing a technology that can be applied to the majority of it's customers. From a business perspective, I can't see any devs backing an NVidia proprietary solution. The only ones who could possibly pull it off are Valve (who are very cosy with NVidia).

Regardless of the technical merits of Mantle, it makes sense from a business perspective, and business decisions trump technical concerns. Always.

Dude, one more time: EA has purportedly received US$ 8 million from AMD for implementing Mantle support. They did not do this because they thought it would be cool to do or because they care about gamers. They did this for the $$$.

We all know how much the big publishers care for and love their PC ports, right? What makes you think that anyone -without being handed similar bribes- will voluntarily support Mantle? That won't happen. What might happen is that MS and Sony will specifically start bribing devs to NOT support Mantle on the PC version as they already do when it comes to keeping the quality of PC ports on the lower end of the spectrum.

Mantle is going to be a total niche that will only be supported by games where AMD coughed up a bribe (like BF4) or by indie/KS developers who want to support Mantle to attract some extra attention to their games.

There's no reason to ditch anything if only a few games ever use Mantle. Without NVIDIA support a lot of devs just won't bother with it.

Eeeeeee-fucking-xactly . Heck, most publishers/devs can't even be arsed to dedicate half an hour to edit config files to remove console leftovers or make the UI scale better to high resolutions on the PC.
Anyone who believes that Mantle will be supported by more than a handful of games is delusional.

The only reason that BF4 has Mantle support is that AMD purportedly threw $8 million bucks in EA's general direction. It remains to be seen how many more millions AMD can afford in bribes. Looking at their financial track record I have serious doubts that the coffers will last all that long.

But without the bribes publishers aren't going to give a fuck about a proper PC version, let alone Mantle support. It's a pretty expensive marketing gag by AMD to boost their VGA sales but this shit has zero substance in the greater picture and will likely just die a silent death from lack of support and interest.

One of the issues I had with the character was how cartoony Laura looked in comparison with the other characters that they tried to make look like real people. Laura still looks a bit like a barbie doll, doing every movement as sexily as she possibly can.

OMFG. You didn't really just write "Laura" twice... /epicfacepalm


You, Sir, are having your Tomb Raider license irreversibly revoked *stamp*

SWG was an incredibly retarded game. The only thing it had going for it was it was Star Wars and the world design team did an awesome job with the planets, the cities and the POIs. Just about everything else reeked of incompetence.

Nah their MO seems to be to just act like a sponge for MMO gamers. Look at the Station MMO network. Lots of pretty similar cookie cutter MMOs. The more, the merrier. They are the masters of carrot dangling and sucking money and life force out of people.

It isn't going to meet people's expectations.......probably not going to end well....

Well it's interesting that somehow they're going to magically hit 40 million and then it's going to stop.
Maybe at 40 mill they will stop taking any more money, and people will not be able to back it until the game comes out.
Sort of what Project CARS did.

That won't happen because as the campaign and its frequent "just one more last" sales (and the backpedalling with regard to LTI) has shown -> Chris Roberts' greed is infinite!

Seriously... what are you doing on a site like Bluesnews where things like intellectual discussion and being educated are actually valued?

HAHAHAHA that was one of the better ones I have heard in a while. A true kneeslapper, bro!

Also... way to stay classy with the ass-rape analogy.

Ah, it was nothing. Don't mention it. "Class" is my middle name.

You, Parker, are a terrible and completely unenviable person.

Oh yes. Now that you mention it I am seriously reconsidering my whole life.

I hope you're simply a 13 year old who doesn't have much education and has just discovered cursing and therefore has no clue how to use vulgarity properly and therefore has a chance to mature.

Well, keep hoping then. Other than you and others here I am done bending over for asshole publishers selling us patches as "definitive versions" or whatever. Square Enix has ripped off people with the Deus Ex HR director's cut and now they're trying to do it again with TR Definitive Edition. Fuck that ass raping shit. There. I said it again .

Fuck them. Bought Tomb Raider Survival Edition for the PC at full price. One of the few games I bought for full price in the last year. And now this ass rape for PC gamers again. Guess how many more Tomb Raiders I will ever buy at full price again dear Square Enix? Yup. You got it. You assholes.

It makes ya wonder on what grounds MS shares are rising. WTF?!? The company's recent track record is full of epic fails.

- Windows 8 = fucked
- Windows Phone = barely anyone gives a shit
- Windows Tablets = even less than barely anyone gives a fuck and they're a rip-off at the current pricing vs. feature set compared to competitors
- Xbone = 'nuff said
- No CEO = The company's been a headless chicken for way too long now (even with Ballmer it was at least a half-decapitated chicken)

So why exactly are MS shares rising again? Because of MS Office?
